The path to spiritual enlightenment is a long one. Full of twists and turns, surrounded by the weeds of uncertainty and misdirection, it begins in the shade of ambiguity and novice. As we travel down it and turn the corner, our lives become illuminated, no longer obscured by the shadows of doubt.
In recent years, as prosperity has spread throughout our globe, the shallowness of materialism has usurped traditional faiths. Motorbikes, IPhones, Flat-screen TVs, and the latest fashion has replaced temples, mosque, Holy scriptures, and prayer beads. The result is a moral decay that poisons human interaction, breeds selfishness and contempt, damages the spirit, and threatens the Earth.
How can we move away from the turmoil of materialism without reverting to the regression of dogma? By realizing that we are each made up of body, mind and spirit; and that we are all interrelated to each other and the cosmos in general. By accepting this fact, we can then raise awareness and consciousness. This will make you happy and successful. You must purify yourself of ego and doubt, so that you may live life in balance and harmony.
Knowledge is the key to enlightenment. Remember the Source, and you will know where to go. Remember Earth, and you will know where your roots are.
